A year ago today Exit Games UK posted their very first blog post and the website has covered everything related to exit games (another name for room escape), puzzles hunts and other interesting events that occur in the United Kingdom and Ireland region.
If there’s a new exit game in the region, you’ll usually hear about it first from Chris, the blogger behind Exit Games UK. There’s also plenty of statistics about the UK/Ireland escape room industry which are covered in frequently updated league tables and a Google map that pinpoints exit game locations in the area.
Most recently he’s created Mechanical Mondays – blogs posted on Mondays that look at assumptions made about exit games and asks the question – why do we play with these assumptions and the impact it has on the game. There’s also plenty of information on other events such as puzzle hunts, DASH, Puzzled Pint, armchair treasure hunts and the Sudoku World Championships. Plus it’s also how I found out about the return of The Black Letter Game – a game which is run every few years, where artifacts are sent to participants via mail and they can form teams to solve the in-game puzzles.
Anything written for Exit Games UK describes the chosen topic in depth, provokes interesting discussions, is informative, well-researched and if I had to nominate a blog that reads like an engaging newspaper for exit games, this would have my vote.
By the way, while looking at Exit Games UK logo – I didn’t realise there was negative space being used until I saw the comment section. Well played Chris and Mark from QMSM. It’s on my to do list to write an upcoming blog about the use of negative space.
